of us have to continue the pressure and isolation on the gadhafi regime. this includes a unified front of diplomatic and political pressure that makes clear to gaddafi he must go. >> the military pressure is being applied by the american, british, and french-led attacks, tilting the odds in favor of the rebels. so far, coalition support has held. but some countries question how long it can continue and what the end game should be. in this libya conflict, what should come next? turkey, a regional power, once a cease-fire, but negotiations, possibly even allowing gaddafi to stay in power. israel also wants a cease-fire and a political deal with gaddafi leaving the country. britain, france, and the united states are adamant gaddafi must go. they want him to face trial for war crimes, with libyans choosing their next leader. who could shed libyas future? this crucial meeting. the foreign secretary, jabril, is a key figure. >> the real aspirations of the libyan people are to be free, to live under a constitutional democratic system where there is a rule of law, all the essential freedoms ar
